RE: Accessing selected text within a richTextBox


Thank you for posting here!

I notice that you post a same issue in the
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.windowsforms.con trols newsgroup and I
have replied to that thread. For your convenience, I include my reply here.

================================================== ==
As Anders has suggested, you can use the SelectedText or SelectedRtf
property of the RichTextBox class to get the selected text within a
I have tried the Selected Method but it seams that the textbox is losing
focus win I click the button...

Do you mean you get the SelectedText property of the RichTextBox from
within the Click event handler of a Button and find that the RichTextBox
loses the focus after you click the Button? If so, it is and this is
because the Button gets focused after it is clicked.

================================================== ===

If you have any question on this particular issue, please reply to that
thread and I will follow up with you in time.

Thank you for your cooperation and have a good day!
